❝My Thoughts❞

Adventures of a Graveyard Girl is an incredibly super cute and comical murder mystery. It's a lot of fun to read, the characters are engaging, the plot is cleverly written, and the romance is sweet and charming. The twists and turns, that Milda Harris throws out at readers are unexpected and interesting making the book that much more enjoyable. It's the perfect blend of mystery, suspsense, and romance. The situations and the writing is incredibly realistic and makes it easy to connect with the characters and find them likable at best.

Kate is a really amazing and fun herione to get to know. Who doesn't love a character that gate-crashes funerals? It's refreshing to see how much more confident she is in her own skin and how she doesn't really care what others think of her. She's encouraging, intelligent, and strong. It's interesting to see her navigate around the clues, piecing them together, and trying to solve the murder of a young girl killed in the bathroom. She has her own style and approach to things, which can be a lot of fun.

The romance between Kate and Ethan is sweet and charming. It was delightful to see how well they connected and realistic their relationship was presented. Readers will find themselves just as excited for their first date, as Kate was until things took a strange turn, and a little bit of murder and mayhem in the girl's bathroom takes place. They're just full of so much energy that it will definitely have readers rooting for them.

The murder mystery, rumors, and panic surrounding the death of a girl their age in the bathroom, was handled very well. It was definitely compelling, full of suspsense, and the right amount of panic. There's so much wonderful creativity and originality that this book has going for it, that it's a ball of awesome for anyone who is a fan of both chick-lit and murder mystery. If you put the two together, then you have the absolutely perfect light read for the summer.
